Stasis has just released, it's looking quite promising

After the latest update, the press finally seem to be descending on the very dodgy Unsung Story which, as a backer, pleases me greatly

Sad news when they screw up so badly and aren't honest with the backers about what's going on. Still waiting to see what will eventually happen with Mighty No. 9, considering that got a ridiculously huge amount of money, you would expect something amazing but something tells me it will disappoint.
Someone should compile a list at some point of all the successful kickstarters that have released where backers have got what they were promised to balance out these negative stories. Would be interesting to see the ratio.

That Dark Souls board game has been smashing stretch goals. Seem to be getting at least one backer update a day from it.

Anyway, some others to recommend;

Arcadian Atlas
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/12 ... nav_search

After being stung by Unsung Story, which is still a disaster, this looks like a potentially decent alternative for the 'spiritual successor to FF Tactics' crown. Four days left!

Insomnia
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/18 ... -max-linux

Neat looking RPG. Perks include hand forged armour, helmet and shield, which is amazing if if it is way out of my price range.

Fear Effect Sedna
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/su ... escription

Something of a switch in genre, but I'm quite keen to back what could potentially be the revival of an old series. Console release was initially a high stretch goal, but was confirmed in the last update to be happening anyway. If, of course, it gets funded in the remaining 9 days.

System Shock remake currently being kickstarted, I have to say it looks great. Really hope it gets released on the PS4.

It even has a demo!

I've not played it before, it does sound interesting. Hopefully a PS4 version will be made eventually.

In their first backer update, they said that they have taken note of all the people askingfor a PS4 release, and are in talks with Sony about it, so hopefully something will come of it.

The original System Shock is available on GoG. I bought and played a bit of it, but it's aged rather badly and I found it a little too clunky to continue.
System Shock and its sequel, for those who don't know, are the spiritual predecessors to Bioshock. SS2 is much more playable, especially with mods that overhaul the graphics. If anyone wants to try it, I have a spare code.

Wasteland 3 is happening on PS4! It will have co-op for the story available, and vehicles. Players can stick together or split up. It's not actually using the kickstarter site though, it's using a different one. As well as having the option to back as normal, there is also the option to invest apparently, which starts at $1,000.


Spoiler: show
